Hand Stamped Sentiments #106 - Color Blocking

This week over at the Hand Stamped Sentiments Blog, we are showing off the Color Blocking technique. This was my first time ever trying Color Blocking, so after a quick Tim Holtz video on you tube, I felt like I had the gist of the technique down. 

I took my own spin on the technique and decided that instead of using an array of colors, I'd stick to just greens on a white background. I decided to try my hand at stitching, so I followed a few of the lines created by the EF and poked holes with my Paper Piercing tool before stitching some Wisteria Wonder Bakers Twine onto my card.

 So, although it's not exactly what I had imagined in my head, it was truly stitched together with Love!
(especially the 2nd time around, paper rips VERY easily!)

Hop over to the Hand Stamped Sentiments blog to see what fun Color Blocking creations the rest of the Design Team has created for you this week and we'd love it if you'd play along too!

Wow lots going on. Love the color blocking. Great idea to do the stems on the embossing folder like you did.
